Sound that stays true
Mixed by today's music masters
The MDR-1R has been made for today's music with the help of leading music artists. Pumping basslines and high notes are heard as they were intended.
Designed by artists
Whether you're listening to dubstep, R&B, or house, the headphones hit the right frequencies thanks to a creative partnership with Sony Music artists.
Ultra wideband audio range
From bass so low that you can only feel it to the highest of possible frequencies, the HD driver unit extends audio from 4Hz to a piercing 80kHz.
HD Driver Unit with enlarged vents
Powerful driver units are crucial in meeting the sub-bass range of contemporary music. The high definition 40mm drivers have large vents for quick bass response.
Hit the high notes
For vocals and other mid-high range notes to sound true, the MDR-1R features a 40mm liquid crystal polymer film diaphragm for rigidity and lightness.
For long hours in the studio
Wear the MDR-1R headphones all day long without any discomfort to your head. The headphones are made with pressure relieving cushions for longer listening.
Hear nothing but your music
Seal out exterior noise
A wrap around design filters noise while offering a stable fit.
Soft silicon rings in the earcup joints minimise interference.
Putting an end to tangles
The headphone's cables have grooves that reduce friction making them less likely to get tangled when loose in your bag.
